Let’s help Little Billy come to life!

Crikey, real life is dragging down the daily posting of the Halloween countdown this year for sure.  I’m hoping to catch up scanning animation cels and stuff again this weekend.  In the interim, I wanted to point everyone’s attention to a super awesome nostalgic cartoon project that I’ve been meaning to mention for awhile now called Little Billy

Little Billy is the brainchild of animator Chance Raspberry (the Simpsons, Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends), and is about a precocious little kid with a unique condition that requires some special needs.  Raspberry’s vision is to create a throwback cartoon that’s fun and entertaining while also bringing to light the issues a lot of kids face with special needs education.  In fact, one of the goals of the Kickstarter project to get Little Billy off the ground is to create a pilot episode that can also replace those some of those unfortunately seriously outdated special education awareness videos in schools around the country.  But don’t just take my word for it, check out what Chance has to say about the project in his presentation video on Kickstarter

The project is pretty darn close to achieving its funding and it only has a little over one more day to go.  I’d love to see this reach its goal and for Chance to be able to reach out to kids with special education needs all over the country know that they’re not alone and that people do care!

So if you have a second, check out the Kickstarter for Little Billy, watch the trailer, and then spread the word about this interesting cartoon!
